Because of changes in new anaconda [1] and after short discussion
Chris Lumens, I propose to delete this beta [2] criterion:

'The installer must be able to complete an installation using the
serial console interface'

Reason (according to Chris): (This criterion) will need to be removed
for this release,
given that there will be no text mode interface temporarily.
No text mode installs at all?  That seems like a pretty critical function to me.  

Is there some new functionality (sorry, I haven't looked into upcoming anaconda changes yet) that replaces this?

How can an admin install on a server they have to use a remote console system for?  Doesn't that also negate the use of iLO's, RSA's and the like?

Maybe I'm just missing something.  VNC maybe?

Couldn't that also affect current kickstart configs used for some testing automation?  Maybe not?
I think most of these questions got answered at the FESCo meeting where the feature was approved.

Please, if you have some suggestions or notes reply to this thread.
there won't be any objections I'll make changes during next week.
